Continued: 'Only' 100 yards leaves Vikings' Peterson 'soul-searching'

“I haven’t watched that in a long time,” he said. “But I have seen it before, of course.”

And he has his memory of it, too. In particular, he remembers wide receiver Sidney Rice racing over to shove a defender out of the way, which allowed Peterson enough time to accelerate to full speed after coming to a complete stop along the sideline.

His YouTube moment stole the spotlight from Brett Favre in his Vikings debut.

“That’s a play I think about a lot,” Peterson said.

He has other things on his mind this week. He wasn’t happy with the way he ran the ball in Chicago. He vowed to bring a different mind-set into Sunday’s game.

“Really trying to strike those guys instead of running away from color as much as I did,” he said. “I will be changing that this week.”
